Our Daily Bread Designs April Release and Blog Hop

Happy April Fool's Day!  I have nothing but treats to share today BECAUSE it is release day at Our Daily Bread Designs!  It is truly a blessing to be able to share such beautiful and fun products with you each and every month.  This one is particularly special for me because it features sewing and quilts!  I have several quilts passed down from my grandmothers, great-aunts and my own mother.  I love the stories the fabric tells.  My Mom, who will be 80 this year, likes to point out the pieces of fabric feed sacks that went into the quilts her own mother made.  I love looking at the quilts my own mother has meticulously hand stitched.  And even though I have ZERO talent when it comes to fabric...  at least I can play with paper! 

So here is the first project featuring A Time to Mend stamp set, Star Quilt Die and new Americana Quilt Paper Collection.

HI Lori - your cards are well laid out and eye catching - I like the black and white sewing machine creation and the quilt creations are so lovely - just like quilts!! I like any type of scripture stamps so those are winners for me and I also fell in love with the Love you To Pieces sentiment - so beautiful are your cards - will bring a smile to anyone who receives them - blessings
wow Lori, love your Americana star quilt with the black outlines!! Gorgeous !
I also love your your log cabin quilt! Beautiful sagey colors on that one! So comforting and soothing (for some reason, maybe it is the smells associated!!) Beautiful flower on it too!

Lori, your cards are awesome. Really feelin' the one using the Americana paper. If you can do this good with paper, I'll bet you can work with actual fabric, too. You do realize that you are bordering on stained glass as well.;) Way to decorate a bedroom, huh?
Laurie said…
Great cards! Love these sentiments and dies. My mom is a quilter and I've got several of her quilts around the house. Your paper piecing is "akin" to fabric piecing! :) Looks just as pretty! :)

So pretty! My favorite scripture verse is on the first one, and it's made with the die I just purchased at a show on Saturday, can't wait to use it. Just need to find the time. I sure have found some inspiration here.
Both are fabulous, Lori!! Love the black contrast with the reds and blues on the first and the warm colors are so snuggly and comfy on the 2nd!! HUGS!!
Hey Lori!!! Wow!!! You have two gorgeous cards here! Love the Americana one so much with the black contrast! And the second one is so pretty with those papers!!!!
